DIY Organized Family Command Center {Free Printables}

Organized Family Command Center

I made an organized family command center (without buying anything new)!

What do you already have at home that you can use?  Get started today!

I’ve been thinking about making a Command Center since we moved into our house (ummm… that was 5 years ago) So, what was the problem?  I never got started because it was overwhelming. Well thanks to Momof6 Get Your Life Organized Boot Camp I finally got motivated. Sharon – thanks for the great tips!

 Command Center How To:

  1. Decide what things you want featured in your command center. Check out my organization inspiration board on Pinterest.
  2. Gather your supplies
  3. Plan your layout, measure twice!
  4. Print documents
  5. Hang Frames
  6. USE your command center daily! It doesn’t do any good if it isn’t functional, adjust as needed.

 

My Command Center Supplies:

Hanging on the walls

On the counter top

File Organizer – Oxford DecoFlex Letter Size Desktop Hanging File

Hanging Folders (labeled Bills to Pay, To Do Immediate, To Do Future, Meal Planning, Coupons, School)

Small Spiral Letter Holder

Post Its, pens, pencils, notepad and dry erase markers with erasers (to write on the glass of the frames)

Cabinet

ClosetMaid 2-Door Organizer – Espresso (I added my own knobs)

  • Right now this cabinet has snacks for the kids organized into dollar store bins (I recycle all of the packaging as soon as I get home from the store, it takes up a lot less room!) I might relocate the snacks and do something else with this space.  Ideas?

Random notes:

I used Bookman Old Style and Simply Gorgeous fonts

Scrapbook paper is discontinued. I used “My Mind’s Eye BH Backyard adventure” for the initial and BasicGrey.com Periphery for the calendar background.

    Thanks for stopping by Home Everyday! This command center is like something out of Better Homes and Gardens. I love how decorative and cohesive it is. You are inspiring me for some artwork on our photo gallery wall. Also, the babysitter checklist is a MUST to add to my area. Thank you for the inspiration!
    Take care,
    Erin

      Glad you like it! Thanks for the sweet note. I figured it should be pretty if I am going to use it everyday :)

    You might be the answer to my prayers!!! :-)   Love all of these ideas and these printables.  Although my husband would probably think my body had been invaded by aliens if he came home to that kind of organization!!!!  Thanks, love it all!
